North Dana, Massachusetts 
February 14, 1931. 

Howard W. Cotton, 

Chairman Board of Selectmen, 

Dana, Mass. 

Dear Sir : 

I have made an audit of the books of the Town of 
Dana for the year ending December 31, 1930, and in so 
far as possible, from the books and records submitted to 
me, I find them apparently correct. 

In the tax collectors books I find a tax amounting to 
$1^.93 paid, but no record of same being cleared and de- 
posited. I have called the attention of the collector to 
this, and she has likely adjusted same, otherwise it will 
carry on through 1.931 and cause future trouble. It is my 
impression in going through this set of tax books that the 
Book of Original Entry is not used as such, which leaves 
opportunities open for errors to occur. 

Yours truly, 

MABEL C. LESLIE, 

Auditor.

President and Auditor, and at the quarterly meeting, April 
1, 1930, Mr. John G. Hammond of Charlton, was chosen 
Vice-President and Mr. Carl F. Davis, West Brookfield, 
Auditor. 

Respectfully submitted, 

HERBERT N. SHEPARD, President 
LOUIS M. MANFF, Sec'y and Treas. 

Charlton, Mass., Jan. 1, 1931 

AUDITOR'S REPORT 

I have audited all bills of the Association for the year 
ending Dec. 31, 1930, including money received and ex- 
pended, and have found them correct ; also all checks which 
were signed by the President and Treasurer. 

CARL F. DAVIS, Auditor.

Report of Superintendent 



I submit herewith for your consideration my first an- 
nual report as superintendent of schools, together with the 
usual statistical reports and those of the school physician, 
school nurse, and supervisor of music. 

In any change of superintendents there are many de- 
tails for the new incumbent to learn. Mr. Arthur W. 
Smith, who retired from this position last summer, was 
especially kind in giving me all the assistance possible so 
that the change occurred with the minimum of difficulty. 
I appreciate, also, the co-operation which teachers and 
committees have shown, and the cordiality with which we 
have been received in the tow r ns of this union. 

The new quarters for the North Dana schools were 
opened in June for the closing days of the spring term. 
All concerned with the welfare of the pupils appreciate 
the excellent conditions which now exist. The building 
is evenly heated by steam. Each schoolroom is lighted 
by a row of windows on one side, and ventilated hy mechan- 
ical means when desired. The new furniture is of the 
movable and adjustable kind. Provision is made for the 
display of posters, drawings, or other work of the pupils. 
Other facilities include a toilet and a drinking fountain 
on each floor, electric lights, a teachers' room, the office 
of the superintendent, and three other rooms used by the 
superintendent for books and supplies belonging to the 
towns of the school union. 

I find the organization of the schools in this town 
excellently adapted for conditions here, and would suggest 
no change so long as the enrollment remains about as it is 
at present. Our next move should be to improve the school 
building in Dana Center so as to equalize the advantages 
offered to all our elementary pupils. 



DO 



The elementary course of study remains about the same 
as heretofore. Minor changes were made in arithmetic 
and in spelling in order to offer a more suitable sequence 
of material. An examination of the history course showed 
that pupils were getting very little background for Ameri- 
can history. This condition has been remedied by the in- 
troduction of a new textbook, "American Beginnings in 
Europe", in the fifth and sixth grades. American history 
as a distinct subject is taught in the seventh and eighth 
grades, but considerable knowledge of the subject should 
be acquired much earlier through reading and through 
patriotic programs. 

The music supervisor, Mr. John T. Bone, visits each 
schoolroom once in two weeks. Pupils are taking con- 
siderable interest in music, and the development of part 
singing is especially commendable. 

Because of the widely scattered population in the four 
towns of this school union, I have not established regular 
office hours. When, however, any one wishes to see me in 
regard to school matters or employment certificates, I shall 
be glad to make an appointment for a meeting at a school 
building or other convenient place. 

FLAVEL M. GIFFORD, 

Superintendent of Schools. 

The report of the superintendent is adopted as the 
report of the school committee.

Report of School Physician 

The new school facilities present a decided credit to 
the school committee and others connected with the con- 
struction. There has not been anything up to the present 
date come to my official notice to require report outside of 
the September physical examination reported herewith.

Individual inspections of pupils' hair, teeth, hands, and 
general appearance were given frequently, and the pupils 
were weighed at regular intervals. Classroom talks were 
given on general hygiene, proper food habits, and health 
habits. Notices of physical defects were sent to parents. 

The Massachusetts State Department of Health issued 
the Health Tags which were awarded at the Child Health 
Day Exercises in May. These tags were given to pupils 
who had the following requirements : Physically Fit Tags : 
no physical defects at the time of examination by the 
school ]3hysician or a medical certificate from the family 
physician, a dental certificate, and standard weight. Teeth 
Tags: a dental certificate. Improvement Tags: improve- 
ment in posture, weight, or health habits. 

Following is a report of the tags awarded:

At the Summer Round-up six pre-school children from 
Dana Center and two from North Dana were given physical 
examinations by Dr. Feindel, school physician. The pur- 
pose of the Summer Round-up is to give parents an oppor- 
tunity to have any physical defects which may be found 
corrected before the children enter school. 

A first-aid kit and a cot with mattress and blanket 
for use in the North Dana school were purchased from 
money which was refunded from the sale of Health Seals 
at Christmas 1929. 

I appreciate the help of the superintendent, also that 
of the teachers and parents, in carrying out the health pro- 
gram in the Dana schools.

Report of Supervisor of Music 



John Philip Sousa, America's premier bandsman and 
composer, has recently written that the greatest reason 
for an education in music is that he has never found any 
one who has had such an education, however small, who 
has ever regretted having it. Good music has been brought 
so close to the American home through the means of the 
radio that more progress has been made in our national 
musical life in the past decade than in the previous two hun- 
dred years. Educators everywhere have realized the signifi- 
cance of music more than ever before, and nearly all agree 
with the words of the late President Eliot of Harvard Col- 
lege that "Music is the greatest mind trainer of them all." 

The greatest jDroblem which confronted us in Sept- 
ember was to create an interest in the subject I have been 
privileged to teach. An attempt to accomplish this in a 
practical way seems to have obtained splendid results. Two 
methods of procedure consisted in giving fundamental 
training on intervals of the scale which is after all the 
basis of all singing, and by placing carefully each voice 
within a comfortable range. 

We have given j:>articular attention to defective voices 
and have encouraged individual singing to the extent of 
practically one hundred percent in the elementary schools. 
Part singing in all classes above the fourth grade has been 
established, and in one class we have been able to stablish 
four part work. 

60 



I was happily surprised at the number of good indi- 
vidual voices throughout the district, and would suggest 
that parents bend their energies toward developing and 
encouraging pupils to an interest in music at home as well 
as at school. 

May I express to the school committee, the superin- 
tendent, the teachers, and the pupils, my sincere apprecia- 
tion for the hearty co-operation which has made the work 
for me so enjoyable and satisfying. 

JOHN T. BONE, 

Supervisor of Music.

Rutland Warren, West Brookfield, West Minster, Princeton 
and Holland had inmates during the year, and Auburn, 
Berlin, Boylston, Dana, New Braintree, Sterling and Hub- 
bardston had none. 

For several years, the Supervisor of State Infirmaries has 
recommended an addition to the house, so that inmates oc- 
cupying the third floor, coud be cared for on the ground 
floor. At its July meeting, the Association voted to build the 
additon and appropriated $4,500.00 for the same. This 
addition is completed and occupied, and the several towns in 
the Association will be assessed to pay for it. It is hoped 
that this will be attended to at the several Town Meetings. 
The expense of the new addition follows: 



Contract, Carpenter, Plasterer, etc.$ 3,489.00

Report of Superintendent 



I submit herewith for your consideration my second an- 
nual report, and am including with mine a number of others 
which should be of particular interest. 

Our schools have continued to function in a very satis- 
factory manner. We have been fortunate to retain, with 
one exception, the services of our able and experienced 
teachers. Miss Beatrice E. Lamb, after a year and a half of 
successful service, resigned in June to become Mrs. Howard 
Haskins Luce. Her position in the Center grammar school 
has been ably filled by Miss Elsie L. Boyd who comes to us 
well prepared and well recommended. 

The text books in use are giving general satisfaction. 
Additional readers were purchased this year for some of the 
grades. Badly worn books have been replaced. The seventh 
and eighth grades have been furnished with a new text in 
Civics, "Active Citizenship/ ' which we hope will prove not 
merely informational but inspirational as well. Citizenship, 
like some other aims of education, is much more a matter of 
feeling than of information. 

We should be especially proud of our two school buildings. 
With the renovation of the Center building last summer the 
town is now providing all its pupils with excellent modern 
conditions of lighting, heating, ventilation, sanitation, and 
equipment. 

I am pleased to report that 43 children, including 29 pupils 
and 14 pre-school children, were given the diphtheria pre- 
vention treatment last spring. This winter 30 pupils re- 
ceived dental treatment through the co-operation of the 
Worcester County Extension Service, the Health Seal com- 
mittee, and the local Red Cross. 

At the present time the Town of Dana has twenty-four 
pupils attending high school, 19 at New Salem Academy, 3 
at Barre, and 2 at Petersham. These pupils are, in general, 
making good use of the advantages offered them, and should 

50 



be encouraged to remain in school as long as they can do so 
profitably. 

This coming year. 1932, there is to be celebrated the two 
hundredth anniversary of the birth of George Washington. 
The celebration is sponsored by the United States Govern- 
ment. Congress has created the United States George 
Washington Bicentennial Commission and the President of 
the United States is its chairman. The commission plans for 
a nation-wide series of celebrations in which every state, 
city, and town, every organization, institution, and indi- 
vidual will participate. It will last from Washington's 
Birthday, February 22, to Thanksgiving Day, November 24. 
During that time the schools will be called upon to give spec- 
ial prominence to the life and character of George Washing- 
ton, "First in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his 
countrymen." 

FLAVEL M. GIFFORD, 

Superintendent of Schools. 

The report of the superintendent together with the 
financial, statistical, and other reports submitted by him are 
adopted as the report of the school committee.

Report of School Physician 



In this my report for the present school year, I beg to say 
that I made the usual yearly inspection of the several schools 
of the town in September, and with the assistance of Miss 
Austin, the school nurse, completed the physical examinations 
of the pupils, with the results as shown in her report. 

We are pleased to have the benefit of some dental work 
done in the schools this year, also note with satisfaction the 
manner in which inoculation against diptheria was accepted 
by the town, which I am sure should be largely credited 
to Dr. Miner, our district health officer, for his efforts in 
bringing this about, and by so kindly performing the work 
himself for the benefit of our people. 

J. C. FEINDEL, M. D., 

School Physician. 



Report of School Nurse 



In September I accepted the position of school nurse, 
My report, therefore, is for the last four months of 1931. I 
have made 16 visits to schools, and 13 to homes. 

The result of the physical examinations given in Septem- 
ber by Dr. Feindel assisted by the school nurse is as follows:

The pupils were given individual inspection twice and 
weighed twice. In November fifty-five pupils were weighed. 
All had gained except three who had lost and three who re- 
mained the same. Nutrition authorities advise us that a 
steady gain in the child's weight be considered the aim rather 
than that any definite weight be held as correct. 

Home visits were made to the parents of children who had 
lost weight, and to the parents whose children needed cor- 
rection of physical defects. 

The pupils have been encouraged to take cod-liver oil 
during the winter months because it confers immunity to res- 
piratory infections and because of its bone and teeth building 
properties. Health instruction has been given thi pupils by 
means of classroom talks, and by the distribution of health 
literature obtained through the courtesy of the Metropoli- 
tan Life Insurance Company. 

A cot purchased with money made available by the sale of 
Christmas seals has been placed in the upper hall of the school 
at Dana Center. 

Through the co-operation of the local Red Cross, the travel- 
ling clinic of the Worcester County Extension Service has 
been secured for dental work in the schools. 

I wish to thank the superintendent, the school physician, 
the teachers, and the parents whose co-operation and as- 
sistance have made possible the carrying on of the health 
program. 

CATHERINE AUSTIN, 

School Nurse. 



Report of Supervisor of Music 



Each year we lose many of our leading voices as was the 
case last June. In spite of this, I feel that each school has 
much greater musical capabilities now than at the close of 
1930. Especially satisfying is the attitude of all toward 
singing, and the favorable reaction toward the theory which 
is taught. 

Now that we have created a desire to sing, and are teach- 
ing the fundamentals which will foster the art of singing, 
may we turn our attention to the quality of music which we 
present to our pupils. If music is to mean anything from an 
educational standpoint, we must present the best, not only 
in school music but in radio and other programs. We have 
endeavored this year to stimulate greater interest in the 
many splendid radio programs, and I suggest that parents 
encourage their children to listen to the best. 

Many schools equipped with radio are taking advantage 
of the Music Appreciation hour broadcast Friday mornings 
by the National Broadcasting Company under the personal 
direction of Dr. Walter Damrosch. Many schools are having 
piano classes with group instruction made possible with a 
single instrument. In this way thousands of pupils are 
learning the fundamentals of piano. Would it be expecting 
too much to imagine in the future our own schools equipped 
for these additional musical advantages? 

Music glorifies the Within. Let Music, then, keep burning 
the little flame that is born into every child. 

JOHN T. BONE, 

Supervisor of Music.

Xote. At the Annual Meeting, Jan. 3, 1933, it was learned' 
that Herbert N. Shepard, President of the Association, since 
January, 1928, would not be available for re-election as he 
was not to be a candidate for Board of Public Welfare, of 
Warren. 

Mr. Shepard brought to the Association the service and 
advice of a practical farmer and experienced business man, 
and under his guidance, the Association made man}' improve- 
ments and was placed on a sound financial basis. His place 
will be hard to fill. 

The new officers of the Association are : President, Percy 
E. Collins, Auburn ; Vice President, Robert F. Tucker, Charl- 
ton ; Auditor, Carl F. Davis, West Brookfield; Secretary and 
Treasurer, Louis M. Hanff, Rutland.

tigate the financial condition of the Association and decide 
upon returning to towns having inmates, a certain sum per 
patient per week, and they decided upon 50 cents per w r eek. 
A check is enclosed which you will please hand to the Town 
Treasurer. 

Respectfully,

Report of Superintendent 



I am pleased to submit my third annual report as super- 
intendent of schools. Your attention is called also to the 
financial and other reports submitted herewith. 

During the past year expenditures for text-books and 
supplies have been low, in fact rather too low. Adequate pro- 
vision should be made in 1933 for the purchase of some new 
readers and health books, and for the replacement of most of 
the geographies. 

Both school buildings are in need of paint. In 1932 this 
item was restricted to painting the steps at Dana Center and 
to painting the piazza and adjacent parts at North Dana. 
The interiors are in excellent condition. 

The schools assisted in the celebration of the George 
Washington Bicentennial. Special attention was given to the 
life and character of our first president through essays, sto- 
ries, lore-books, pictures, and recitations, and in the gradua- 
tion program in June. 

You will note that there has been an increase. in the en- 
rollment in both elementary schools. This does not, how- 
ever, add appreciably to the expense. During the fall term 
wejiave had 27 pupils attending high school, 25 in New Salem, 
1 in Bar-re; and 1 in Petersham. They are classified as fol- 
lows : 5 Freshmen, 13 Sophomores, 6 Juniors, and 3 Seniors. 
The larger number of pupils going to New Salem made it nec- 
essary for the committee to make new arrangements for 
their transportation. Mr. C, 0. Lindsey was given a two- 
year contract and secured a larger bus. It is expected that 
this new bus will be filled to capacity when school opens in 
September. 

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has followed the 
policy of equalizing somewhat the financial burdens due to 
public education particularly in small towns. For the school 
year ending last June we paid out $2,810.75 for tuition of high 
school pupils. Our reimbursement on this item was $2,105.81,

or almost exactly three-fourths of the expenditure. We paid 
out $2,062.00 for high school transportation and were reim- 
bursed $1,964.10. We received reimbursement for a little 
over one-half of the superintendent's salary and expenses. We 
received $720.C0 on account of teachers, $200 each on account 
of Miss Doane, Miss Horan. and Miss Whelton, $100 for Miss 
Boyd, and $20 for Air. Bone. We also received $1,598.60 un- 
der General School Fund, Part 2, which definitely attempts to 
equalize the effect on the tax rate because of expenditures 
for teachers' salaries and elementary transportation. 

As a result of this policy you will note in the financial 
report that only about one-half of the total expenditure is 
raised by local taxation. The same will be true in 1933 pro- 
viding the laws remain the same, for we can expect a return 
to the treasury of about $7,400 during the year. 

FLAVEL M. GIFFORD, 

Superintendent of Schools. 

The report of the Superintendent together with the fi- 
nancial, statistical, and other reports submitted by him are 
adopted as the report of the School Committee.

Report of Supervisor of Music 



To the Superintendent of Schools : 

The ability to sing is one of the most enjoyable experi- 
ences of life. To express one's emotions through song is an 
experience which everyone should enjoy. The man who rec- 
ognizes only one melody, "The Star Spangled Banner," and 
that because the audience rises when it is played, is indeed to 
be pitied. The world of music with its beauty and inspiration 
is unknown to this man. This should not be true of our child- 
ren. They must be helped to acquire singing ability in order 
that their lives may be enriched from beginning to end, and 
each should attain adult life with a desire for increasing musi- 
cal experiences. 

With this ideal in mind Ave feel that a favorable report 
on the year's work is in order. Individual and group singing 
is much improved, and a marked progress has been made in 
part singing. The musical intelligence of the pupils has de- 
veloped to such a degree that a part of each period can be 
profitably spent discussing the best in music and the lives of 
famous musicians. 

Through the means of this report may I again express my 
appreciation of the cooperation extended me in my work 
throughout the entire district. 

JOHN T. BONE, 

Supervisor of Music.

Report of School Nurse 



To the Superintendent of Schools : 

I hereby submit my report as school nurse in the town of 
Dana for the year 1932. 

Forty-four visits were made to schools and 24 to homes. 
The following communicable diseases were reported : pedicu- 
losis 2, scabies 2, impetigo 8, mumps 2. 

The pupils were weighed and inspected individually five 
times during the year. In December 66 children were weighed 
of which number six had lost weight and one remained the 
same. The loss of weight was only temporary and was at- 
tributed to the prevalence of the "common cold" among the 
children. 

There is a regular morning health inspection of pupils by 
the teachers and a definite period is allotted for instruction 
in health matters. Class-room talks were given for the pur- 
pose of laying emphasis on the health instruction of the 
teachers. 

The annual Child Health Day exercises were held in May. 
Health tags issued by the Massachusetts Department of 
Health were awarded to pupils who had the following re- 
quirements : "Physically Fit," no physical defect at the time 
Oi the examination of the school physician and the dentist; 
'"Teeth Tag," a dental certificate; "Improvement Tag," im- 
proved posture, weight, or health habits. The report of the 
lags awarded is as follows : Total enrollment 57, Physically 
lit -6, Teeth tags 12, Improvement tags 31. 

A summer round-up of pre-school children was held in 
June. Ten children were given complete physical examina- 
.ion by the school physician assisted by the school nurse. The 
object of the summer round-up is to inform the parents of any 
defects so that the child may enter school less handicapped. 
Of the ten children examined, four were found without de- 
fects. 

44 



In September the Chadwick Clinic was held in the 
schools and So pupils were given the tuberculin test. The 
results were gratifying as but a very small number of pupils 
reacted and of these none was diagnosed as active tuberculo- 
sis. 

I thank you, Mr. GirTord, Dr. Feindel, teachers, parents, 
and pupils for the cooperation and assistance given me in the 
health program. 

CATHERIXE L. AUSTIN. R. N., 

School Xurse. 



Report of School Physician 



To the Superintendent of Schools : 

I beg to report my activities for the past year connected 
with my duties as school physician in the schools of Dana. 

In conjunction with Miss Austin, the school nurse, Ave 
made regular physical examinations of the pupils as reported 
by the school nurse and which meets my approval without 
comment. 

I made several visits of inspection to the schools with re- 
gard to the appearance of several diseases of a contagious 
nature, which were promptly controlled by the careful meas- 
ures carried out by the teachers and school nurse. 

The Chadwick tests resulted in eminent success and with 
satisfactory showing. 

On December 26th I was called to find one whole family 
down with the measles, and instructed them not to send any 
of the children to school until every vestige of rash and cough 
had disappeared. 

Health precautions within the schools appear to be taken 
care of with evident success, and I hope it may continue so 
for the rest of the school year. 

J. C. FEINDEL, M. D., 

School Physician.

Audit of Accounts of the Town of Dana 

August 19, 1930 to September 20, 1932 

IN ACCORDANCE WITH PROVISIONS OF CHAPTER 44, 

GENERAL LAWS 

Mr. Theodore N. Waddell 

Director of Accounts 

Department of Corporations and Taxation 

State House, Boston 

Sir : 

As directed by you I have made an audit of the books and ac- 
counts of the town of Dana for the period from August 19, 1930, 
the date of the previous audit, to September 20, 1932, and submit 
the following report thereon: 

The financial transactions, as recorded on the books of the de- 
partments receiving or disbursing money for the town, were ex- 
amined, checked, and verified. 

The books and accounts of the treasurer were examined and 
checked in detail. The recorded receipts were compared with the 
records in the departments collecting money for the town and with 
the other sources from which money was paid into the town treasury, 
while the payments were checked with the warrants of the selectmen 
authorizing them. The cash on hand was verified by an actual count 
and the bank balances were proved with statements received from 
the banks. 

In checking the receipts from temporary loans, it was found that 
Note No. 37, certified by the Director of Accounts for $6,000 on 
August 3, 1932, was deposited with the bank and two distinct loans 
aggregating $3,000 were made against it to September 20, 1932, 
This method of borrowing should be discontinued, as it is contrary 
to the provisions of Chapter 44, General Laws. 

The savings bank books representing the investment of trust 
funds in the custody of the treasurer were examined and listed. The 
income and withdrawals were checked and the funds were found to 
be as reported. 

The books and accounts of the tax collector were examined and 
checked. The taxes and assessments outstanding at the time of the 
previous examination were audited and all subsequent commitment 
lists of poll, real estate, personal, motor vehicle excise, and old age 



assistance taxes wei r ed with the commitment war- 

rants of the assessors. The ;:..-. Ions as recorded in the cash books 
were checked with the commitment lists. The payments tc the Treas- 
urer were verified, the abatements were checked with the assessors' 
record of abatements granted, lutstanding accounts were 

listed and proved. 

A further verification of the tax accounts was obtained by 
mailing- notices :: a numbei >i pei ; t.s whose names appeared, on 
the books :• . r money U the town, the replies received thereto 

indicating that The accounts, as listed, are correct. 

A comparison :t the appropriations, as listed from the town 
. Lerk's records of town meeting pi : : rr t::t;s. with the aggregate 
amount expended from each m the several appropriations disclosed 
a number :t overdrawn appi priati n in 193C and 1931 in violation 
of Section 31, LThaptei 44, Genera] Laws, tc ...... :~.Tention was 

called in previous audit rei rts. It appears, however, that ; 
present officials are determined to keep liabilities within the 
amounts appropriated and to avoid overdrafts. 

Ledger accounts weie : mpiled and analyzed, and a balance 
sheet showing the financ oditioD :f the Town on September 20. 

1932. was prepared and is appended to this report. 

The financial accounts of the town clerk were examined and 
checked. The receipts foi iog licenses issued >n behalf of the 
county and for sporting licenses, the proceeds of which are paid to 
the State, were checked with :;.e records of licenses granted. The 
payments to the county fcreasurei and tc the r ,: -": ; ::n of Fisheries 
and Game. respectively were verified and the sash »n hand was 
proved by an actual count. 

The surety bonds of the town clerk, treasurer and collector. 
for the faithful performance of their duties were examined and 
found to be in proper form. 

The accounts of the sealer of weights and measures were ex- 
amined, the receipts being checked with the records of weights and 
measures sealed and adjusted. The paymerT; to The treasurer were 
verified and the cash on hand was proved by an actual count. 

The accounts of the fire warden, the public welfare department 
and the school department were examined. The departmental records 
of charges for services rendered or miscellaneous sales were checked 
with the recorded collections : Tie paymer.Ts I the treasurer were 
verified, and the outstanding accounts were listed and proved. 

The recorded receiDts for fines, etc.. received bv the Dana and 






North Dana Libraries were checked, the payments to the treasurer 
and the cash balance being verified. 

No records have been kept of licenses granted by the select- 
men, of town hall rents, or of sales of cemetery lots, and accordingly 
these accounts could not be audited. Arrangements are being made 
for the keeping of adequate records in the future. 

While engaged in making the audit, I received the co-operation 
of all town officials, for which, on behalf of my assistants and for 
myself, I wish to express appreciation. 

Respectfully submitted, 

EDW. H. FENTON, 

Chief Accountant.

During the year of 1933 there were only three towns not 
represented by inmates, Berlin, Hubbardston and New 
Braintree. 

It has been a year of all around improvements, all of 
which were paid for during the year out of the receipts. 

The new electric refrigerator, new heating boiler, coal 
storage pit, new water supply pipes, excavating under the 
additions built the year before, concrete floor, smoking room 
and laundry in the basement, and nearly all of this work was 
done by the Warden and help of the inmates, the Association 
paying for the material and some skilled labor. 

Our Warden deserves much credit for planning and car- 
rying out this work.

Report of Superintendent 



To the School Committee : 

I hereby submit my fourth annual report as superin- 
tendent of your schools. The work of the year has progressed 
normally and satisfactorily except for several interruptions 
caused by epidemics of measles, mumps, grippe, and colds. 

The two school buildings have been improved by a coat 
of paint, and minor repairs have been made. The schools are 
both in excellent condition. We were particularly pleased by 
the gift of a piano to the Center school by Mr. Samuel S. 
Darling. 

Grades 3, 5, 6, 7 and 8 have been furnished with new 
geography texts which are proving to be very satisfactory. 
The reading course has been improved by the addition of 
'science readers". With the enormous amount of knowledge 
available in this age, we must introduce more of it into the 
elementary grades. There is still room for the ''Pollyanna" 
stories, but they must give way somewhat to material of 
more importance. There should be less make-believe and 
more factual material which is valuable in getting the pupil 
to appreciate and understand the world around him. 

The teachers have been asked to encourage a greater use 
of the public library facilities for the purpose of getting pu- 
pils in the habit of reading for benefit and pleasure. We want 
every pupil from the fourth grade up to do some outside 
reading. We want a reasonable participation by all pupils 
rather than high individual records. The average number of 
books read during the fall term was eight. This is not a 
high record, especially when we find that 60% of the pupils 
read less than that number. However, 100% of the pupils 
read something outside of the class work, and the results 
are, therefore, gratifying. 

During the fall term thirty-three pupils of this town 
were attending high school, twenty-nine at New Salem, two 

36 



at Petersham, and two at Barre. In general the reports from 
the high schools are commendable. 

In closing I wish to call to your attention the net cost 
of public schools to the local taxpayers. You will find in the 
financial report that the re-imbursement in 1933 amounted to 
more than half the total expenditures, leaving $6,598.13 to 
be paid by local taxation. 

FLAVEL M. GIFFORD, 

Superintendent of Schools. 

The report of the superintendent together with the finan- 
cial, statistical, and other reports submitted by him are 
adopted as the report of the school committee. 

LESTER L. HAGER, 
FELISE C. WILDES, 
ELVIE M. DOUBLEDAY. 

of Supervisor of Music 



To the Superintendent of Schools : 

I am pleased to submit favorable report on the year's 
work in the schools of Dana. 

With the decrease in enrollment we have been able to 
concentrate on individual work which has produced splendid 
results. Part singing, however, at the Center school is es- 
pecially commendable. We are deeply grateful for the piano 
at the Dana school, which enables us to present musical sub- 
jects much more interestingly, and to accompany the indi- 
vidual and group singing. 

I feel that we have reason to be proud of the standard 
of work done by the primary students at North Dana, due 
to the conscientious efforts of Miss Doane. We would like to 
be equipped with a piano at this school which would aid in 
further musical development. 

May I express my deep appreciation to all who have 
helped to make this year both successful and pleasant. 

JOHN T. BONE, 

Supervisor of Music.

Report of School Nurse 

To the Superintendent of Schools : 

I hereby submit my report as nurse in the Dana schools 
for the year 1933. 

Forty-three schoolroom visits and twenty-three home 
visits were made. The following cases of communicable dis- 
eases were reported: mumps 20, measles 18, impetigo 1, 
chicken pox 5, scabies 5, and pediculosis 7. 

The pupils were weighed five times during the year and 
the weight was entered on the report cards. The children 
were all given individual inspection five times, and some more 
frequently as the cases required. Health instruction has been 
carried on as usual. 

The communicable disease report shows epidemics of 
mumps and measles, yet the teachers have been very con- 
scientious in inspecting the children, and in excluding from 
the school any children with disease symptoms. If a child 
has been exposed to a communicable disease he should not 
attend school until the period of incubation has passed. Also, 
if a child does not care to eat breakfast, that child rightfully 
belongs at home until the reason for his malaise is known. 

The annual Child Health Day exercises were held in May. 
Health tags issued by the Massachusetts State Department 
of Health were awarded as follows: 15 Physically Fit tags to 
pupils without physical defects and of standard weight, 6 
Teeth tags to pupils having dental certificates, 61 Improve- 
ment tags to pupils who had shown improvement in health 
habits or weight. 

The annual summer round-up of pre-school children was 
held in June. Six children were examined by Dr. Feindel, and 
notice of the physical defects Avere given the parents. 

I thank you, Mr. Gifford, Dr. Feindel, the teachers, par- 
ents, and pupils who have co-operated so well with me dur- 
ing a difficult year. 

CATHERINE LUCILLE AUSTIN, R. N., 

School Nurse. 
38 



Report of School Physician 

To the Superintendent of Schools : 

I herewith submit my report for the past year. 

With the efficient assistance of Miss Austin, the school 
nurse, we made the required examinations. The conditions, 
physically, were fairly satisfactory. Dental defects were the 
most marked. Some of the minor infections, scabies, im- 
petigo, and mumps were reported, but were readily taken 
care of, and without any apparent bad results. 

Our duties attending the hygienic conditions of the 
schools, I feel, were measurably aided by the careful obser- 
vation of our superintendent, teachers, and school nurse, for 
which I must voice my sincere appreciation. 

J. C. FEINDEL, M. D., 

School Physician.

Report of Superintendent 



To the School Committee of Dana: 

I desire to submit this, my first report as Superin- 
tendent of Schools in Dana. It will be brief, covering as 
it does but the last four months of 1934. 

Upon taking up my work here in September, I found 
two school buildings in excellent condition physically, 
and so equipped with modern heating and ventilating 
systems, lighting, and sanitary toilet conveniences as to 
leave little to be desired from the point of view of the 
physical comfort and well-being of the children. These 
conditions are a source of satisfaction to all those having 
to do with the care of the health of the children, and 
with the directing of their formal education in the class 
room. It should also, I believe, be a source of satisfac- 
tion to the parents. With such buildings and with a 
teaching force though small, conscientious in its efforts 
to give the children the foundations of a good education, 
and sincere in its endeavor to build character, the aim of 
all true education, little fear need be felt as to their fu- 
ture success in higher institutions of learning, or as to 
their ultimate ability to assume their rightful places in 
the life of their community, wherever they may be. 

The Grades 

The smallness of numbers of pupils in the various 
grades, while not conducive to much keen competition 
and wholesome rivalry among such pupils, yet has the 
great advantage of allowing much work with the individ- 
ual pupil on the part of the teacher, permitting of a closer 
check by the latter upon the work accomplished and upon 

40 



the special needs of the pupil. As may be seen from the 
statistical report printed herewith, there is an average of 
but approximately six pupils per grade in both schools. 
There are six pupils preparing to enter High School in 
the fall. 

High School Pupils 
At present there are twenty-nine Dana boys and girls 
enrolled in the High Schools of neighboring towns — 
twenty-three in New Salem Academy, two in Barre High, 
and four in Petersham High School. In all cases I be- 
lieve that these boys and girls are justifying by their 
records and by their attitudes toward their school work, 
the cost of their tuition and transportation to the tax- 
payers of Dana. 

School Work 
The school work in both sections of the town is pro- 
gressing favorably. Efforts are being made through the 
installation of a simple course of study in English with 
an accompanying guide for the diagram analysis of sen- 
tences to strengthen the work in technical grammar to 
the end that the pupils be more uniformly prepared to do 
the advanced work in English in the various High 
Schools more successfully. Courses in the various other 
fundamental subjects will be introduced later in the year. 

Text Books 
Most of our text books are modern and in excellent 
condition. We have a good supply of worthwhile reading- 
material, both basal and of a supplementary nature. Our 
proposed addition of a new and more up-to-date text book 
in American History, and a series of improved Music- 
books should add greatly to the effectiveness of the work 
in those two subjects. 

A Suggestion 
In general, the Elementary Schools must prepare 

41 



their pupils for success in High School by giving those 
pupils the "fundamentals" — ability to read, write, spell 
and do a certain amount in mathematics, etc. In former 
days this process of instilling the "fundamentals" was to 
a large extent a weeding-out process. The failure of 
many, either through lack of ability or of interest, to 
secure the foundations necessary to successful work in 
the higher grades, caused them to drop out of school, 
especially upon arriving at the legal age at which that 
could be done. Today this is changed. Industry is not 
open to children at fourteen years of age. The result is 
that "everyone" enters High School. Of necessity, many 
of these are not fitted to cope successfully with academic 
High School work. We are particularly fortunate here 
in that, although we have no High School, the Agricul- 
tural Department at New Salem is available for those of 
our boys who are not particularly interested in "book 
work," as a place where such boys may yet attain suc- 
cess. I hope that the boys of Dana who are interested in 
such work as is offered by this department are taking, 
and will continue to take advantage of the opportunities 
of such a school to the fullest possible extent. 

Conclusion 

In closing this report, I wish to thank everyone in 
any way connected with the school for the cordial spirit 
of cooperation shown toward the Superintendent of 
Schools, upon his coming a stranger among you. 

Respectfully submitted, 

WILLIAM A. NICKERSON, 

Superintendent of Schools.

The report of the Superintendent, together with the 
financial, statistical and other reports submitted by him

Report of Supervisor of Music 

To the Superintendent of Schools: 

I hereby submit the following brief report upon the 
work in music in your schools in Dana. 

The work of the year has, on the whole, been satis- 
factory. The children are uniformly interested in their 
music, and seem to be trying to do their best. I hope, 
during the present year, to introduce a new text book in 
music in the various schools. Our present series, while 
a good one, has been in use so long that the song con- 
tent is quite thoroughly known to all the children except 
the first graders each year. I believe a new series of 
books, with its new arrangement and its new material 
will go far toward stimulating new interest in the sub- 
ject. 

May I express appreciation to the teachers, and to all 
who have helped in any way to make the year both a 
pleasant and musically successful one. 

JOHN T. BONE, 

Supervisor of Music.

Report of School Physician 



To the Superintendent of Schools: 

I desire to submit this brief report of my work as 
School Physician in Dana for the last four months of the 
year. 

With the help of the School Nurse, Miss Austin, I 
made the usual yearly examinations of the children early 
in the school year. Health conditions seemed fairly sat- 
isfactory but with some teeth needing attention. The 
proposed Dental Clinic will undoubtedly remedy this con- 
dition to a large extent. 

The physical conditions of the two school buildings 
in the town are excellent. Both of these buildings, with 
their excellent toilet facilities, heating and ventilating 
systems, and last, but not least, the pleasant and well 
equipped classrooms, should react favorably upon the 
pupils by giving them a physically comfortable and hap- 
py school experience. The townspeople and committee 
should be complimented upon these excellent buildings.

Report of School Nurse 

1934 

To the Superintendent of Schools: 

I hereby submit my report as school nurse in the 
Town of Dana for the year of 1934. 

Forty-two visits were made to schools and thirteen 
to homes. 

The following cases of communicable disease were 
reported : 

Mumps — 1 Measles — 1 

Whooping Cough- — 2 Scabies — 2 

In May the annual Child Health Day exercises were 
held. Health tags issued by the Massachusetts Depart- 
ment of Health were awarded as follows: 

10 Physically fit tags to those having no physical de- 
fects. 
12 Teeth tags to those presenting dental certificates. 
41 Improvement tags for improved posture, weight or 
health habits. 

In June, at the summer round-up, complete physical 
examinations were given to four pre-school children, and 
notices of defects found were sent to the parents. 

In September the annual physical examinations were 
given by Dr. Alexander, assisted by the school nurse. 

The report follows: 
Number of pupils examined 47 

Number having defects 44 

Defects found: 

Nutrition 9 

45 



Posture 20 

Teeth 40 

Throat 7 

Nose 3 

Glands 5 

Heart 4 

Notices of the defects were sent to the parents. 

During the past year three children were taken to 
the Cooley Dickinson Hospital for removal of tonsils and 
adenoids. A general improvement has been noticed in 
the children since the correction of these defects. 

In November a dental clinic was held under the 
auspices of the Hampshire County Chapter of the Ameri- 
can Red Cross. Dr. Glade P. Hall was the clinic dentist. 
The report follows : 

Children examined 46 

Children with dental defects 39 

Children treated at clinic 22 

Fillings 23 

Extractions 25 

Cleanings 7 

The pupils were weighed and were given individual 

health inspection five times during the year. The parents 

were notified of loss or gain in weight as the case might 

be. Health instructions in matters vital to the welfare 

of the pupils were given by the teachers assisted by the 

school nurse. 

I thank you, Mr. Nickerson, the teachers, parents and 
pupils for the loyal cooperation given me during the past 
year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

CATHERINE L. AUSTIN, R. N. 

School Nurse.

Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend 
to defeat its purpose, therefore it is hereby declared to be 
an emergency law, necessary for the immediate preservation 
of the public convenience. 

Be it enacted, etc., as follows : 

Section 1. Section ten of chapter thirty-nine of the 
General Laws, as appearing in the Tercentenary Edition, is 
hereby amended by inserting after the word "town" the first 
time such word appears in the seventh line the words : — , 
or in a manner approved by the attorney general, — so as to 
read as follows : — Section 10. Every town meeting, except 
as hereinafter provided, shall be called in pursuance of a 
warrant, under the hands of the selectmen, notice of which 
shall be given at least seven days before such meeting. The 
warrant shall be directed to the constables or to some other 
persons, who shall forthwith give notice of such meeting in 
the manner prescribed by the by-laws, or, if there are no 
by-laws, by a vote of the town, or in a manner approved by 
the attorney general. The warrant for all town meetings 
shall state the time and place of holding the meeting and 
the subjects to be acted upon thereat. The selectmen shall 
insert in the warrant for the annual meeting all subjects the 



insertion of which shall be requested of them in writing by 
ten or more registered voters of the town and in the war- 
rant for every special town meeting all subjects the insertion 
of which shall be requested of them in writing by one hun- 
dred registered voters or by ten per cent of the total number 
of registered voters of the town. No action shall be valid 
unless the subject matter thereof is contained in the warrant. 
Two or more distinct town meetings for distinct purposes 
may be called by the same warrant. 

Section 2. All town meetings called in pursuance of a 
warrant, under the hands of the selectmen, notice of which 
was given at least seven days before such meeting, and the 
acts and proceedings thereof, and of the officers elected 
thereat, in so far as said meetings, acts or proceedings were 
invalid by reason of the failure to call the meetings in ac- 
cordance with section ten of chapter thirty-nine of the Gen- 
eral Laws or corresponding provisions of earlier laws, are 
hereby validated and confirmed. Approved July 12, 1935. 

Article 20. To act on any other business which may 
properly come before said meeting. 

And you are directed to serve this Warrant by post- 
ing attested copies hereof in each of the Post Offices in 
said Town seven days at least before the time of holding

Hereof, fail not to make due return of this Warrant, 
with your doings thereon unto the Town Clerk at the time

Six.

Report of Superintendent 



To the School Committee of Dana : 

I desire to submit this, my second annual report as Su- 
perintendent of Schools in Dana. 

The work of the past year has gone on in the usual way. 
As will be seen from an examination of the statistical report 
printed herewith, the number of pupils enrolled in our 
schools at present is ten fewer than that of last spring; and 
the number of Dana pupils attending the High Schools of 
New Salem and Petersham is also smaller by six. These 
decreases are natural and follow the gradually diminishing 
size of the town. 

Miss Gertrude Whelton resigned her position as teacher 
of the Dana Center Primary school in June after seven 
years of satisfactory service, to accept a position as fourth 
grade teacher in Medway. Miss Ruth Montgomery of Ayer, 
a graduate of Fitchburg State Teachers' College, was selected 
to take Miss Whelton's place, and began her duties in Sep- 
tember. 

After nine years of faithful service as janitor at the Dana 
School, Mr. Samuel Darling died during the summer, and 
Mrs. Felise C. Wildes was appointed janitor, the appoint- 
ment taking effect at the beginning of the present school 
year. 

At present there are five Dana pupils enrolled in Peters- 
ham High School, and fifteen (including one post graduate) 
in New Salem. A distribution of marks attained by these 
pupils during the period from September to December, in- 
clusive, may be interesting, showing as it does in some de- 
gree the measure of success attained by the two groups.

As the seven lowest marks were distributed among five pu- 
pils, it will be seen that no pupil is failing to date and that 
most of the pupils are doing good work. 

HOUSEHOLD ARTS 

The addition in September of a Household Arts Depart- 
ment to the offering of work at New Salem Academy, has 
greatly broadened the choice of subjects at that school. 
Eight Dana pupils have availed themselves of the opportu- 
nity to become acquainted with some phase of Household 
Arts work including foods, clothing, laundry, marketing, and 
the like. The Department is, I believe, proving its value to 
those taking the work, and will be increasingly effective 
with further development of the various courses. In con- 
nection with this work, hot lunches will be served at cost 
to such of the pupils as desire to purchase. This will be 
begun early in the new year. 

In closing, I wish to call attention to the financial and 
other reports printed herewith, as giving a picture of school 
conditions in general, and the costs of the various school 
activities ; and also as showing the extent of state support 
of our educational program. 

Respectfully submitted, 

WILLIAM A. NICKERSON, 

Superintendent of Schools. 

The report of the Superintendent, together with the fi- 
nancial, statistical, and other reports submitted by him, are 
adopted as the report of the School Committee. 

Signed, 
LESTER L. HAGER, 
FELISE C. WILDES, 
ELVIE M. DOUBLEDAY, 

School Committee of Dana.

Report of Supervisor of Music 



To the Superintendent of Schools : 

Of all the fine arts, music is or may be the most universal 
and most effective in the life of a people. Since culture and 
knowledge demand that we find joy only in the good, the 
true, and the beautiful, we must be very careful in the se- 
lection of music for use in our schools, both as to words and 
to music. 

Although the beneficent influence of music study reaches 
out in numberless directions, it is generally agreed that the 
primary aim of music instruction in the schools should be 
the development of a lasting love for the best in music, an 
intelligent appreciation of it, and a willing participation in it. 

Although due to unsettled local conditions we have ex- 
perienced difficulty in accomplishing desired results collec- 
tively, we believe that we have been able to do much more 
for the individual pupil than in schools numerically larger. 
The response on the part of each pupil has been generally 
satisfactory. 

My sincere appreciation to all who have in any way made 
this year both profitable and pleasant, is in order at this time. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN T. BONE, M. B., 

Supervisor of Music.

Report of School Physician 



Mr. William A. Nickerson, 
Superintendent of Schools, 
Dana, Mass. 
Dear Sir : 

In reporting as School Physician of Dana I would state 
that the regular examination of pupils was made, and pre- , 
school and diphtheria prevention clinics were held. The de- 
tails of the health program will be found in the report of 
Miss Austin, the school nurse. 

I think the pupils in your town are receiving very good 
care, and wish to thank everyone for their co-operation in 
this important work. 

Respectfully yours, 

KIRKE L. ALEXANDER, M. D. 

School Physician.

Report of School Nurse 



Mr. William Nickerson, 
Superintendent of Schools, 
Dear Sir : 

I hereby submit my report as school nurse in the town 
of Dana for the year of 1935. 

Visits to schools 45 

Visits to homes 23 

The pupils were weighed five times during the year. The 
parents were notified of the gain or loss of the children 
through the medium of the weight card. 

Each child was given individual health inspection five 
times during the year and even more frequently when a con- 
dition was found which demanded close follow-up on the 
part of the nurse. 

In April a toxin-anti-toxin clinic for the prevention of 
diphtheria was held at the North Dana School. The clinic 
was open to all the children of the town who had not had 
three toxin-anti-toxin injections before. Twenty-seven chil- 
dren were given the three injections. 

In June the Summer Round-up of pre-school children was 
held. Four children attended and were given thorough phy- 
sical examinations by the school physician, Dr. Alexander. 
The object of the Summer Round-up is to inform parents 
of any defects found, and to advise them concerning diph- 
theria immunization and vaccination before the child enters 
school. This gives the child an opportunity to enter school 
without handicaps. 

This year ten children were transported by the school 
nurse to Petersham for the Von Pirquet test given under 
the auspices of Worcester County Tuberculosis Association. 
Two children reacted positively and were X-rayed. They 

70 



were then given a thorough physical examination and are 
to be followed up yearly by the County Clinic. 

The annual physical examinations were given the children 
in September by Dr. Alexander, school physician, assisted by 
the school nurse. The report follows: 

Number of pupils examined 35 

Defects found : 

Nutrition 6 

Posture 19 

Throat 11 

Nose 3 

Heart 1 

Mucous Membrane 1 

Teeth 9 

Five children were examined who had no defects. 

Those children with defects were given notices to take 
to their parents. Home visits also were made by the nurse 
to encourage the parents to have these defects corrected if 
possible. 

The audiometer, an instrument for testing the hearing 
with the greatest degree of accuracy, was used in the Dana 
schools. Twenty-seven pupils were examined and all were 
found to have excellent hearing. 

During the course of the year the following number of 
communicable diseases cases were reported : 

German measles 13 

Pink eye 3 

I wish to thank you, Mr. Nickerson, Dr. Alexander, the 
teachers, parents, and pupils and all others who have con- 
tributed in making the health program more successful. 

Respectfully submitted, 

CATHERINE L. AUSTIN, R. N. 

School Nurse.

Report of Superintendent 

I desire to submit this, my third annual report as Super- 
intendent of Schools in Dana : 

The schools during the past year progressed normally 
with very little change from the year before excepting a slight 
diminution of numbers. Maintenance costs for the schools 
were slightly higher than for the past few years, due to the 
fact that some boiler and chimney repairs had to be made dur- 
ing the year, as well as some necessary interior painting par- 
ticularly of the toilet room floors at the North Dana School. 
The chimney of the Dana building was retopped and thorough- 
ly cleaned. 

During the summer, it was decided to establish a small 
sixth grade at Dana Center at the beginning of school in Sep- 
tember. This was done and made the enrollment at that school 
for the six grades respectively, four, tAvo, onej two, two, and 
three. The plan has apparently worked out very well, the num- 
ber of grades being rather large and varied, but the enrollment 
in each grade small enough to allow of effective work almost 
of an individual nature. 

Miss Ruth Montgomery who taught the Center School 
last school-year, resigned at the close of the year to accept a 
second grade position in the schools of Auburn, Massachu- 
setts. School officials and parents were sorry to see her go, 
but her place has been, I believe, capably filled by Miss Helen 
Steeves, a graduate of the four-year course at Fitchburg 
State Teachers' College, who began her work in the school 
and community in September. 

In view of the changes taking place in the town and its 
probable ultimate fate in the not too distant future, a brief 
study of the schools and a comparison in respect to certain 
features such as personnel and costs over a period of the past 
ten years may be of interest. Such a comparison is shown in 
the following tables, one for Elementary Schools and the oth- 
er for High School education of Dana pupils in other towns.

It will be seen in Table I that costs per pupil have mount- 
ed greatly during the past three years. This is natural because 
of a greatly reduced number of pupils enrolled accompanied 
by a reduction of but one in the teaching force. 

Table II shows in brief that the per capita cost to the 
town of Dana for the secondary school education of its boys 
and girls is relatively small, the average cost per pupil in net 
average membership of High School education in towns of 
less than 5,000 population throughout the state being approx- 
imately $125.00. The enrollment figures used in these tables 
are slightly larger than net average membership figures would 
be, therefore the per capita costs shown in the tables are 
somewhat smaller than would be the case were net average 
membership figures used. The difference, however, would not 
be large. 

HORACE MANN CENTENNIAL 

Special exercises will be held in the public schools of the 
state and nation during the year 1937 in commemoration of 
the hundredth anniversary of the birth of Horace Mann. It is 
fitting that this should be done, as Horace Mann, born in 
Franklin, Massachusetts, is everywhere recognized as "Pio- 
neer advocate of the common schools, Legislator, Editor, 
Author, Secretary of the Massachusetts Board of Education, 
and College President, who, through his intellectual fore- 
sight and unselfish service, left a heritage to every one of our 
children more precious than gold — a free education." 

In closing, may I call attention to the other reports oi 
different phases of school activity printed herewith. 

Respectfully submitted, 

WILLIAM A. NICKERSON, 
Superintendent of Schools, 

The report of the Superintendent of Schools, together 
with the financial, statistical, and other reports submitted by 
him, are adopted as the report of the School committee. 

(Signed:) 

LESTER L. HAGER, 

ELVIE M. DOUBLEDAY,

Report of School Physician 



Mr. W. A. Nickerson, 
Supt. of Schools, 
North Dana, Mass. 
Dear Sir : 

Aside from the regular examination of pupils there has 
been little need for my services during the last year. Your ef- 
ficient school nurse with the excellent cooperation of your 
teachers handles the ordinary contagious diseases very well. 

I would, perhaps, urge you to greater effort in obtaining 
a correction of defects found, although I feel that in general 
health your pupils are above the average. 

Respectfully submitted, 

KIRKE L. ALEXANDER, M. D., 
School Physician.

Report of School Nurse 



Mr. William Nickerson, 
Superintendent of Schools, 
Dana, Massachusetts. 
Dear Sir : 

I hereby submit my report as substitute nurse in the 
Town of Dana from October 1, 1936, to January 8, 1937: 
School visits 7 

Home visits 8 

A complete physical examination had been given by Dr. 
Alexander, school physician, in September and was assisted 
by Miss Austin. 

The children were weighed and measured tAvice since 
October. They were given individual health inspection on 
each visit. 

Health talks were given on personal cleanliness and on 
the importance of good posture, rest and diet. A number of 
children are taking Cod Liver oil during the winter months 
and seem to be profiting by it. The children were all urged to 
take Cod Liver oil if possible. 

There has been no contagion reported since October 1, 
which is very satisfying. 

Glasses were secured for one girl through the American 
Red Cross. The child needed glasses and they are helping her 
a great deal. 

Home visits were made to children when ill, and advice 
was given to mothers. 

I wish to thank Mr. Nickerson and the teachers for their 
kind cooperation. 

Respectfully submitted, 

CATHERINE B. NICHOLS, R. N., 

School Nurse

Report of Supervisor of Music 



To the Superintendent of Schools : 

I still visit each school once every two weeks throughout 
the year to assist in the planning and the carrying out of our 
regular work in music. During this period of musical instruc- 
tion we encourage the student not only to participate in 
music, but also to listen to the best in musical programs 
through the means of the radio. I feel confident that we may 
expect the cooperation of the parents in seeing that programs 
of the best are made available to their children. 

We consider ourselves fortunate in having a splendid 
piano at the Dana Center school, but to date we are still hop- 
ing that we may in some way obtain one for the North Dana 
building. 

The pupils of tomorrow will be confronted with the prob- 
lem of much leisure time. What he does in this leisure time 
will have just as much to do with determining what he be- 
comes and his value to the State, as what he may do during his 
work hours. May I suggest increased activities of a musical 
nature as one answer to this apparent problem of the future. 

My sincere thanks to all for continued cooperation. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN T. BONE, 
Supervisor of Music

* — The reason for such a high abatement for 1936 is be- 
cause these taxes were assessed to the original owners of 
record but at a later date the Metropolitan District Water 
Commission included these taxes to their list also resulting in 
an assessment to them. The taxes were paid by the Commis- 
sion leaving a double assessment. The Assessors were not 
advised of the transfer of the property at the time of the 
original assessment.

Superintendent's Report 



To the School Committee and Citizens of Dana : 

I desire to submit this as my fourth annual report as 
Superintendent of Schools in Dana : 

No change took place in the teaching force during the 
year just past. 

Due to the fact that there were no graduates from the 
North Dana School in June, and also to the fact that five 
pupils entered the first grades in September, the number of 
elementary pupils remains approximately the same as last 
>car, in spite of loss of children due to the moving away of a 
number of families with children during the year. The num- 
ber has been further kept up this year by the entering of 
several children of parents employed temporarily in clearing 
the land for the water project. The number of Dana and North 
Dana pupils attending High Schools dropped to nine in Sep- 
aember, four attending New Salem Academy and five attend- 
ing Petersham High School. It is interesting to note in this 
connection, that the Danas sent thirty-three pupils to various 
High Schools in 1933, and twenty-nine in 1934. It is a 
pleasure to announce that, although small in numbers, this 
High School group is without exception, doing well, and is a 
credit to its home town. It seems to be capably measuring up 
to the high standard of work set for it by such groups in the 
past. 

It was decided to discontinue the sixth grade at the Dana 
Center School, and beginning in September to have only 
grades one to five, inclusive, in that school and transport the 
sixth graders to North Dana along with the seventh and 
eighth grade pupils. This plan gives a better distribution of 
grades per teacher and is working satisfactorily. 

62 



At the close of Charles O. Lindsey's school bus contract 
period in June, the School Committee asked for bids for the 
transportation of pupils as per his expired contract, elemen- 
tary pupils from Dana to North Dana and high school pupils 
to New Salem Academy. Of the several bids submitted, Mr. 
Guy Schouler's was accepted and he began work in Septem- 
ber. Both he and Mr. Thayer are handling the transportation 
in an efficient manner. We are pleased, also ,to say a word of 
appreciation for the faithful and careful service rendered 
over a period of years, by Mr. Lindsey in carrying out the 
terms of his contract not only to the letter but also in the 
spirit of service to the children. Mr. Lindsey always had the 
safety and comfort of his passengers, the boys and girls, at 
heart and deserves the thanks of both pupils and parents. 

CONCLUSION 

As this report is being written, it appears that it will be 
the last in a long series of such reports made through the 
years by many different superintendents. If the work of the 
Metropolitan District Water Commission goes along as 
scheduled the sites of once busy and prosperous towns may, 
within the year, be covered by water, and the Danas, as 
towns, cease to exist. But they will always remain as pleasant 
memories in the thoughts of the hundreds forced out of their 
homes in the name of, and in the interests of modern 
progress. 

In closing, may I express my sincere appreciation to all 
for the wholehearted support which they have given to the 
schools and through them, to the children for whom the 
schools exist, throughout all the years. And may I extend 
good wishes for success and happiness to all in whatever new 
places of abode and in whatever lines of work they may find 
themselves in the years to come. 

Respectfully submitted, 

WILLIAM A. NICKERSON, 

Superintendent of Schools

Report of School Physician 



Orange, Mass., January 12, 1938 

Mr. W. A. Nickerson, 
Superintendent of Schools, 
Dana, Mass. 

Dear Sir : — 

It is with a feeling of. regret that I submit this report, as 
I feel it is possibly the last time I may be called upon to do 
so. I have felt very deeply the change which is taking place 
in your town, and wish devoutly that it had never been 
deemed necessary. 

My relations with you, the School Board, teachers and 
parents have always been friendly, and I admire all of you 
who have carried on your duties amid such disheartening 
surroundings. I feel that the health of your school children 
has been amply guarded, and am pleased with the degree of 
cooperation exhibited in the correction of what defects have 
been found in my examinations. 

Good luck to all, in whatever new places you may live. 

Respectfully yours, 

KIRKE L. ALEXANDER, M. D., 

School Physician

Report of School Nurse 



Mr. William A. Nickerson, 
Superintendent of Schools, 
Dana, Massachusetts, 

My Dear Mr. Nickerson : — 

I submit the following report as school nurse in Dana for 
the year 1937: 

Visits to schools 36 

Visits to homes 20 

In June the annual summer round-up was held for the 
pre-school children who were to enter school in September. 
The physical examinations were given by the school physician, 
Dr. Kirke Alexander assisted by the nurse. Report follows : 
Number of children examined in summer round-up 3 
Number of children without defects 1 

Number of children given 3 injections of toxin- 
anti-toxin 2 
Number of children vaccinated 3 
Defects found: 
Throat 1 
Nose 1 
Teeth 1 
Corrections made : 
Throat 1 
Nose 1 
Teeth 1 
In September the annual physical examinations were 
given by the school physician, Dr. Kirke Alexander. Report 
follows : 



66 



Number of Children examined 31 

(Nine children were without defects.) 

Defects found : 

Throat 8 

Nose 2 

Posture 22 

Glands 2 

Nutrition 4 

Teeth 22 

Heart 1 

Corrections made : 

Teeth 7 

Health instructions are regularly given the pupils by the 
teacher assisted by the school nurse. 

A new form of physical defect notice recommended by the 
State Department of Public Health has been sent to the 
parents. 

This type of form has the advantage of allowing the par- 
ents to secure recommendations from the school nurse or the 
school physician, Dr. Alexander, and gives the nurse informa- 
tion concerning what action on the defect found the parents 
plan to take. Also, new forms for the physical defects of the 
pupils in each classroom have been given every teacher so 
that they might better know the physical status of pupils. The 
individual pupil's physical record forms furnished by the 
State do not permit a full report of the home visits made by 
the school nurse to the child. In order that there might be a 
continuity of health education in every visit the nurse makes 
to various homes a new type of report, the "Family Foldei 
System" is being used. 

In September the school clinic for tuberculosis under the 
auspices of the Worcester County Sanatorium was held in 
Dana. The report shows that but one child reacted positively 
who upon X-ray was found to be negative clinically and dis- 
charged from further service of this clinic. 

67 



Many of the valuable improvements in the health pro- 
gram during the past year could not possibly have been 
achieved were it not for the assistance, the cooperation, and 
support of all individuals connected with the school 
personnel. 

Respectfully submitted, 

CATHERINE LUCILLE AUSTIN, R. N.

Report of Supervisor of Music 



To the Superintendent of Schools : 

We are approaching the turn of a century of public school 
music in the United States, it being just ninety-nine years 
since Lowell Mason, noted educator and musician, introduced 
the study of music into the public schools in Boston. The 
movement, then on trial, spread rapidly to other cities and 
finally to smaller communities. Today, everyone believes that 
music contributes to finer living. And everyone agrees that 
the children of rural communities deserve all the advantages 
which today are offered in city schools. 

The day of isolation of rural communities isj past. Good 
roads, modern transportation, telephones, and the radio have 
brought all parts of the country into neighborly proximity. 
Educators are studying the contribution of the various school 
subjects to better living. Among these subjects, music takes 
an important place and one which educators now recognize 
as essential to modern school life. Our! schools are finding the 
music lesson one of the chief joys and inspirations of the day. 

In its last analysis the value of music in the school may 
be measured to a considerable degree by the effect it has on 
the whole community. His music studies are of slig-ht wortn 
to the child unless he grows to feel that music is an interest- 
ing and enjoyable part of life, associated with his deeper life 
experiences, enriching them, and enlarging and refining his 
emotional reactions, to the world about him. 

Our objective in the schools in Dana has been to con- 
tribute our very best to develop this very feeling toward 
music. The townspeople have had opportunity to be the 

69 



judges of these results from the various public appearances 
made by the children, and we are very grateful for the helpful 
comments received. 

In closing I wish to express my appreciation to all who 
have helped in any way to make my term as music supervisor 
in the Town of Dana both profitable and pleasant. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN T. BONE, 
Supervisor of Music

Dear Mr. Humphreys : 

We feel that the following sums may be necessary for the 
support of the schools during" 1938: 

Public Schools $ 6,800 00 

Vocational 300 00 

These sums are in large part based on the supposition 

that most of our school activities will end at the close of this 

school year. We are allowing, however, for the possibility that 

the Dana School may open in the Fall. 

Yours truly, 

WILLIAM 1 A. NICKERSON, 

Superintendent of Schools
